Kindergarten 239


Introduction to the Kindergarten Program:

The Kindergarten program is designed to help children build on their prior knowledge and experiences, form concepts, acquire foundational skills, and form positive attitudes to learning as they begin to develop their goals for lifelong learning. It is also designed as the foundation for a continuum of learning from Kindergarten to Grade 8.

It is critical that Kindergarten programs reflect the importance of early literacy and early numeracy in order to provide what evidence-based research suggests is developmentally sound programming for children in the Kindergarten years. Effective programming occurs in the context of a rich oral-language environment and contains engaging language resources that provide the foundation for successful literacy development.
